Textiles

Working from her studio in Scarborough and inspired by nature and her beautiful surroundings, Lindsey has an experimental approach to her work, exploring mediums and processes beyond their perceived boundaries. Probably best known for her popular felt ‘pebbles’ and wearable art, she creates a range of unique home and fashion accessories.

Many and varied processes are involved and combined including dyeing; feltmaking; weaving;  fine art; and textile printing methods (screen printing, transfer printing, etching and collograph printing). Most of Lindsey’s work involves a degree of feltmaking, more specifically, Nuno felt, which is where wool fibres are combined with fine fabrics.

Having left the textile industry to focus on her own work, in 2010 Lindsey’s was awarded an Arts Council development grant. As a result, her products are now placed in galleries around the UK. She has exhibited both as a solo artist and as part of group exhibitions, the highlight being the Entwined exhibition with textile artist Jan Bee Brown and jeweller Samantha Birch at Woodend Creative Workspace. Lindsey also sells and exhibits her work at various craft fairs and Open Studios.

Lindsey’s work ranges from small items such as felt brooches to larger artwork and wraps. From £10 – £1000.

Current methods of working: Private Commission,  Training, Craft fairs
